In 2018, the PThU launched the Moral Compass Project. The project explores how one can meaningfully think about a ‘moral compass’ that transcends our personal preferences in a situation of moral pluralism.

The Moral Compass Project aims to challenge widespread notions of morality and provide alternatives. On the one hand, this is done on a fundamental level. How has the idea of a universal law developed over time and why has it been lost? The project contributes to strengthening a 'moral compass', focused on the good without holding us hostage. On the other hand, the project explores in three applied fields what a 'moral compass' could contribute to concrete ethical questions in the field of freedom of speech, the notion of the family and questions concerning the end of life.
